It’s been several years now since beloved actor Robin Williams passed away. But when the legendary comedian died in 2014, he left behind three devastated children: Zak, Zelda and Cody. Of course, they, along with the rest of the world, were floored by the news. And while they all released tribute statements honoring their late father at the time, in June 2019 Zak again paid his respects to Robin in a way that brought tears to fans’ eyes around the world.
But Zak’s initial reaction after his father died was heartbreaking in itself. In a statement released through his dad Robin’s representative, he said, “Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend, and the world got a little grayer. I will carry his heart with me every day. I would ask those that loved him to remember him by being as gentle, kind, and generous as he would be. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought.”
